Roxy's the French Bulldog's happy ending!

Roxy the French Bulldog won over the hearts of everybody at GMB when she visited this morning.

Beautiful Roxy, who was smuggled into the country, has been adopted by a loving family since authorities discovered her and a number of other illegally smuggled puppies.

Roxy was illegally imported from Lithuania and seized at Dover, then quarantined by the Dogs Trust.

Roxy is owned by a person at Dogs Trust, so Piers lucked out and so did we, as she can't now be the GMB dog!

Brendan Cole: Alive and Kicking

Strictly Come Dancing start Brendan Cole joined us this morning to confirm he is very much alive and kicking. Rumours of his death had previously circulated in the media, which Brendan said made him feel "awkward and uncomfortable".

When asked, Brendan said he would "love" to take the role of a judge on Strictly Come Dancing when Len Goodman leaves at the end of this series. He added: "I find it very easy to be honest, and I know what I'm talking about."

How Owen overcame autism barriers with his love of Disney

When Owen Suskind was diagnosed with autism at the age of three, doctors warned his parents Ron and Cornelia that he might not speak - and for the next three years he remained silent.

Owen couldn't make eye contact or communicate at all until a passion for cartoons revealed a way to change things for the better. One day Ron mimicked a line from a Disney film and Owen replied with the next line. Such films went on to provide the connecting link from Owen's world to that of his parents.

Ron is now 25 and has his own radio show. His father made a film about the family's journey called Life, Animated and the three of them joined us this morning to talk about how Disney changed their lives.

MP tells GMB that UK should follow Germany and ban the burka

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has said the wearing of full-faced veils should be prohibited in the country "wherever it is legally possible".

Conservative MP Philip Hollobone joined us this morning to give his reasons why he believes the UK should follow Germany and ban the burka. He stated: "You simply can't have a normal everyday conversation, a normal human interaction, if a person has their face covered".

He added: "If you think it's acceptable for a woman to wear a burka, just ask yourself would it be acceptable for a man to wear a full face balaclava."

Is there a place for this kind of ban in Britain?

Gary Johnson: Chelsea's payout was a 'form of abuse'

– Gary Johnson

Ex-Chelsea footballer Gary Johnson joined Good Morning Britain this morning after revealing the club paid him £50,000 to keep quiet about abuse he endured as much as twice a week for four years as a youth.

Johnson, who appeared on the programme alongside his wife Marcye, told us of how the hush money was a "form of abuse in itself" and of how he felt he had no one to talk to about it.

He is due to meet representatives from Chelsea FC in person later today, where they are expected to formally apologise in person.

The official probe into child sexual abuse allegations in football will ensure any failings by the authorities or clubs "are brought to light", the English Football Association has said.

A hotline for footballers who have been the victims of sexual abuse has been launched by the NSPCC. The hotline will be available 24 hours a day on 0800 023 2642. You can also visit the following:
